I thought about putting some girly gears in mine, but that would make it pull the trailer like a gasser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always wonder about this, if you have a six speed, and went to 3.08's, wouldn't you just run in 5th when pulling heavy?

Oh deep burn....


California, hasn't that fallen off the world yet?

EDIT: and that's why I need to slow down when reading posts at work...

Caledonia, yeah, that's right near me, 'bout 20, 30 miles.

And the saddest part of it is that I work in Iowa....
